Ghouls, Goblins Descend on the Island

Last Sunday’s Halloween Hoopla on Webster Street was another success this year. It brought several scary figures to the West End for some festive fun. The West Alameda Business Association (WABA) hosted the Hoopla last weekend, prior to Halloween. Among the attendees were the Loorz family of Alameda (above) dressed as characters from Nightmare Before Christmas. Family members include: Felicia Chavez-Loorz as Barrel, Rob Loorz as Mr. Oogie Boogie, Lilith Chavez-Loorz as Shock and Xavier Chavez-Loorz as Lock. Last Tuesday night, after the Alameda Sun went to press, streets in Alameda’s East End and Gold Coast neighborhoods were expected to be packed with families and youngsters trick or treating for Halloween.
